About Joe McClean

After studying Shakespeare in college, nepotism from a construction worker Uncle in NJ delivered the education that would actually keep Joe fed. Over the years, his time swinging a hammer dwindled as he studied at the Royal National Theatre, acted in touring children's theater, wrote & directed two indie features, joined the WGA, and started a family... And on occasion, he still opens his toolbox.
